Manic Mondays - A Glamourous Las Vegas Weekend
This weekend the Manic team preformed at Restaurant 69 (on Palmerstone Road, Southsea) This spectacular Viva Las Vegas night was in celebration of the Birthday boy – Ansel (who appeared on come dine with me) and his 70th Birthday.
Manic kicked off the evening with the fantastic male singer Jamie Riley opening with a laid back 45 minute set of classics from the Rat Pack era whilst guests arrived and sipped champagne. Then livening the evening up our three showgirls stepped out on stage wearing beautiful sparkly, glitzy showgirl costumes with luxury white feathers. Dancing to a selection of Vegas themed songs – Viva Las Vegas, Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend, On a Night Like This, Burlesque and Copa Cobana, the showgirls gave the evening extra glamour and certainly enhanced the Viva Las Vegas themed evening. Accompanied by the wonderful female singer Nicola Lashley, who had the birthday boy on his feet dancing whilst she belted out the Kylie Classics. Giving Ansel an evening he would never forget!
With costume changes and a whole lot of high kicks the Manic team had the whole crowd transported to Las Vegas with our glamorous showgirl entertainment. A male guest said the evening was “wonderful and very tastefully done” and the restaurant proprietor Jayne Elliot sang our praises saying, “As always you guys were brilliant, I love using you (Manic) as you’re so different (compared to the other entertainment teams).”
The event ended with another set from Jamie stepping up the tempo a notch with his swing sensation, which had all the party goers singing along, dancing and having a night to remember.
